Smooth Operator WE’VE GOT HEART-EYE EMOJIS FOR THIS HAIR MASK I have seriously  long-ass hair and if I’m not careful, it can basically turn into a gigantic, dreaded rat’s nest thanks to some natural frizz and my aversion to hairbrushes. That’s why I’ve fallen so hard for this “nourishing mask” from Amika ($28, loveamika.com). I put it on in the shower for a couple of minutes once a week and it takes my mane from witch to mermaid. Apparently, I can thank its main active ingredient, sea...
  Here at BUST, we are all about body positivity, and that includes being against excessive Photoshop. Advertisements that digitally erase pores, whittle away waists, and even distort elbows (???) contribute to an unrealistic and unattainable beauty standard for women. That’s why we’re loving this new lingerie campaign starring Girls stars Lena Dunham and Jemima Kirke (who is a former BUST cover gal, btw). The images show Lena and Jemima hanging out in a bathroom, applying makeup and simply lounging comfortably, in a scene that could be straight...
According to a 2015 State of Women-Owned Business report by American Express Open, it is estimated that black women in the United States currently own 1.3 million businesses nationwide, making them the fastest growing group of entrepreneurs today. The last ten years have seen an increasing number of black women embracing their natural beauty by “going natural,” eschewing the chemical relaxers used to permanently straighten the natural curl pattern in favor of learning how to properly style and maintain their own hair without chemical alterations. The...

Considering how often corsets, crinolines, and towering headpieces were responsible for some hapless female’s untimely demise, it seems only fair that occasionally fashion should be credited with saving a historical lady’s life instead of putting an end to it. For an example of this, we need look no further than author and historian Margaret Drinkall’s newly published book The 19th Century Barnsley Murders. A collection of seventeen carefully detailed and impeccably sourced incidents of true crime that took place in the South Yorkshire town of Barnsley...

If you’re a woman who exists in the world, you're probably aware of society’s obsession with the “thigh gap.” In case you aren’t, we’re sorry to fill you in: the “thigh gap” is the space that some thin women have between their thighs when they’re standing with their knees together. It’s presented as a highly covetable beauty ideal, especially over the past several years, and it’s heavily featured on pro-eating disorder “thinspiration” blogs. The thigh gap is so harmful that some social media sites, including...
